2. A final [k] following a consonant is usually spelled <k>. A final [k] following a long vowel is usually spelled <k>. A final [k] following a short vowel spelled with a digraph is usually spelled <k>. A final [k] following a short vowel spelled with one letter is usually spelled <ck> or <c>. If there is only one vowel sound in a word that ends with a [k] following a short vowel sound, the [k] is usually spelled <ck>. If there is more than one vowel sound in a word that ends with a [k] following a short vowel sound, the [k] is usually spelled <c>.

3. Spelling An Initial [k]: Here are twenty words that start with the sound [k]. Sort them into the matrix:

5. If an initial [k] has an <e> or an $\underline{}$ right after it, the [k] is usually spelled <k>; otherwise it will usually be spelled <c>.

Teaching Notes.

Item 5. Again remember the importance of the usually’s here and that this series of lessons deals only with choosing among the <c>, <k>, and <ck> spellings of [k]. The other eight [k] spellings were identified in lesson 9. The spellings discussed in lessons 20 and 21 are a separate issue.
